energywise key terms
EnergyWise: Key Terms
  • EnergyWise Entity
  • EnergyWise Domain
  • EnergyWise Levels
  • Importance
  • Priority

EnergyWise Entity

  • An EnergyWise entity is a device that can communicate with an EnergyWise enabled network.
    • Examples: switch , PC, phone, AP, HVAC, lighting controllers…
  • Entities have a parent-child relationship.
    • Examples:
      • IP phone attached to a PoE switch
    • Air handler attached to an HVAC controller

EnergyWise Domain

  • An EnergyWise domain is a logical grouping of EnergyWise enabled entities.
  • Each EnergyWise entity belongs to one domain.
  • DNS-like naming hierarchy to reference entities:
    • Example:
    •, Role=Phone, Name=Lobby
energywise neighbors and children
EnergyWise Neighbors and Children
  • Connected entities in a domain can have a neighbor relationship and/or a parent-child relationship.
  • Parent entities care for their children in multiple ways:
  • Passthrough
    • Child is EnergyWise aware and events are forwarded directly to the child.
  • Proxy
    • The parent will be responsible for events associated with the child entity.
  • Translate
    • The parent will translate the events to a language the child can understand.
    • Example: BACNET





EnergyWise Levels

  • An EnergyWise power level indicates the power state of an entity.
  • The EnergyWise power management application/CLI can tell devices to enter power states using an EnergyWise power level set command.
    • Example: Set level 5
  • The entity can also communicate its power level back to the network.
what you d want to know about usage
What You’d Want to Know About Usage
  • What are the EnergyWise levels for the parent/child?
  • What is the usage?
  • How was the usage measured?
  • What would be the net change if I select to a different level?

EnergyWise Importance

  • EnergyWise importance is a way to differentiate between devices.
    • Example:
      • An office phone has lower importance than a business-critical or emergency phone.
      • The emergency phone never goes into sleep mode.

EnergyWise Query

  • Entity Phone
  • Priority of 50
  • Action: Set level Shut

EnergyWise Priority

  • Priority determines which devices will be affected.
  • If the priority is greater than importance, action is taken.



Shut < 50





EnergyWise Enabled










EnergyWise Query

  • Various types of queries can be performed in a domain.
  • Query actions: set, collect, sum

Set power level

Sum current power usage

Collect power at power levels

Delta or change of power usage at a specific level

embedded event manager what is it
Embedded Event ManagerWhat is it?

EEM is an IOS technology that runs on the Catalyst 6500’s control plane. It is a combination of processes designed to monitor key system parameters such as CPU utilization, interface errors, counters, SNMP and SYSLOG events, and act on specific events or thresholds/counters that are exceeded…

The first release of the EEM implementation (in Rockies 3.1 with Software Modularity) is based on V2.1.5

embedded event manager how can it be used
Embedded Event ManagerHow can it be used?

These are a few of the many uses that EEM can be applied to…

Send a page message to operations if any unauthorized hardware in installed/removed

Bring a backup link up when a packet drop threshold has been exceeded…

Run specific commands at set time intervals to assist in capacity planning

Send an email alert when a configuration change is made in production hours…
